Optimized Expression of a Thermostable Xylanase 11 A Gene from Chaetomium thermophilum NIBGE 1 in Escherichia coli
The xylanase (Xyn11A) gene (883 bp) was amplified using C. thermophilum DNA as template and cloned into pET-32a (+) and expressed in E. coli BL21 under T7 promoter. The recombinant xylanase on SDS-PAGE had a molecular mass of 30 kDa. Productivity profiles of xylanase in E. coli recombinant are more than 4-fold of that produced from T. reesei RUTC-30, 5-fold of that produced by the donor and significantly higher than the values reported on other E. coli, and Saccharomyces cerevisiae recombinants. Temperature stability, pH stability, and other kinetic parameters confirmed that the gene product was thermo-stable in alkaline buffer favoring its suitability to bio-bleaching of kraft pulp.

More about this publication?
- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
